Field Trip to the Capital

After 2 semesters of saving peso by peso, we were able to take the kids on a field trip to the capital, Santo Domingo. We loaded all the kids from both preschools, as well as all the teachers and several parent helpers onto a bus for the 3 hour trip to the capital.

Our first stop was to Trampoline, a children's museum, where the kids were led on a guided tour through exibits about space, the earth, the human body, and natural wildlife of the DR.

We then took the kids to an aquariam right by the ocean. It was amazing seeing the kids running through the aquarium saying things like, "look! There's Nemo!"

Many of the kids had never seen the ocean before and kept asking if it was just a big river. It was so fun to see them all so excited about seeing new things.

It was truly a treat to spend this day watching the kids learn so many new things and have so many new experiences.
